    What I've seen looks and works great. I think the application being done properly is the key.

            We used Ceramic Pro on our Axopar. 2 1/2 years, though always in a dry stack and washed each time, the boat looked like new when we sold it. It was incredibly easy to just hose it off, no fuss at all. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

              That was the biggest difference I saw. People who had the "real deal" coating, not the spray can job, looked brand new. Water didn't "stick" to the hull. It slid off. No scum line at the end of the day, and any filth just rinsed off.. Mirror shine..

                I have a close friend that does extremely expensive classic cars. He has tried a few of them. He is happy with one particular product (I will have to get the name). As others have stated, the prep is the really big issue.

                  I should have added, I've used CP on my trucks and cars, with the same result. Water just runs off, very easy to wash and keep clean, using no soaps at all. I never wax them. Smashed love bugs rinse off the hood and fascia easily. I love it.

                  I had a Back Cove with a dark green hull. To keep a decent shine it would have to be polished and waxed twice a year and even then would oxidize/chalk quickly. I looked in to painting and boocoo bucks. Ceramic was a little less than 1/3 the cost of paint so I tried it. He spent three days prepping (30’ boat) and a couple days putting on a base coat, then the top coat. First, the shine was incredible and second it lasted a season and a half until I sold the boat. He would use a syringe to apply the coating to his applicator.
                  bottom line - very happy with it

                    I just had our wake surf boat completely ceramic coated by a professional, who also does our vehicles, and it looks better and is 10 times easier to keep clean. I would highly recommend it and like mentioned above the key is in the prep work but also the brand of ceramic.

                      A guy I work with had his Tundra done. Rims and all.. I think his was $1800, but about $600 was paint correction before application. Any dents, scratches, oxidation, etc.. needed to be corrected first. His truck looks brand new. It still looks great after 18 months or so.
